Birds Are Secretly Composers?

Taken a minute to recap, but SDSG caught one heck of a run of shows last week. Kicking things off on Thursday, we headed to Giants stadium to catch the Boss play his 2nd to last show there. This was actually my 1st time seeing Bruce & the E Street band (where the heck have I been?) & they were in the fine of form. It's unbelievable how much energy this guy brings to the the stage considering the man just turned 60. Opening with a new Wrecking Ball (dedicated to the stadium) he proceeded to run through all of the Born to Run album + a bunch of other hits / covers mixed in. Highlights for me included Human Touch, Dancing in the Dark, Badlands, Because the Night & Thunder Road. Bruce: we'll be seeing you again guy!


The next day Bob Weir came to the Brooklyn for the 1st time in 20 years for a special as part of Scaring the Children, a trio that featured original RatDog members Rob Wasserman and Jay Lane. Earlier in the day I was fortunate to catch their sound-check & I couldn't stop thinking..holy crap..thats Bobby Weir on stage. Later on that evening, they came on stage only after the Yanks beat the Twins in an extra inning thilla - offering up gems like 'Maggie’s Farm', 'Loose Lucy', & the Beatles 'Blackbird'.


Closing out the weekend, the Disco Biscuits played the Bowl on Sunday night as part of their record release party. These guys sell out the Nokia theatre, so seeing them play at such a smaller venue was cool. To add to the party, we snagged a few lanes & proceeded to eat, bowl & shake our $$ makers to the music. Not bad for a Thurs>Sunday run eh?

Wow how the week has flown by. Hope you all are doing well out there. Been real busy with work but def. have some good things on the horizon. Tomorrow we'll be going to see the Boss @ Giants Stadium followed by a Bob Weir performance at the Brooklyn Bowl Friday night. Talk about a 1-2 punch.

"There was a phase in my life where I was exploring the more psychadelic side of life, and man the night time would be filled with wild whipping metal music and pure grain fruit punch and chaos and metal jaw biting spine tingling mental confusion and I remember so very clearly one morning laying in some shitty hotel room bed covered in applesauce and the sun was starting to come up and I felt like I had just killed a baby seal...and that’s when I knew I dug the folk rock."

Gov't Mule @ Brooklyn Bowl


Last night a few buddies joined SDSG at the Brooklyn Bowl for Gov't Mule's album listening party & performance. Warren & crew stuck mostly to songs off the new album (which sounds great btw) & played to a crowd filled with family, friends & VVIP's. Not only is Warren one of the most badass guitar players on the planet, he's also one of the nicest. He took some time to chat with us post show & pose for a few pictures. Warren...you look good pal!
